Artist Turns Discarded Books Into Stunning Crystallized Sculptures


Alexis Arnold is a San Francisco-based sculptor, who in her series known as Crystalized Book Serieshas put ice on the books. In her collection, glass-like crystals cling to bindings and pages. Arnold coats her hardcover volumes with a special solution that she takes up to a boil and then allows to cool; once hardened, the books are frozen in sculptural poses. The volumes are striking to look at, but of course, rendered useless as reading material. The crystallization process deforms and warps the pages into beautiful and almost organic sculptural forms.

In the last few years, she has used the same method to crystallize everything from antique cookware to crab shells and even bicycle wheels, which she exhibited in a series of installations.
